Humanitarian Innovation Fund: Implementation Grants for Innovation

Deadline: 2 December 2016

The Humanitarian Innovation Fund is seeking applications for the Implementation phase, the fourth phase of implementing a tested innovation in a humanitarian setting in the innovation process.

This means the implementation of an innovation to produce tangible real examples of changed practice, testing the innovation to see how it compares to existing solutions. Often using pilot projects to move beyond proof of concept, this stage establishes how an innovation performs in practice – indicating whether it is successful and should be scaled-up.

Funding Information

A grant from £75,000 to £150,000 is available for the Implementation phase of the process.

Types of Implementing Projects

  • Testing and validating methods and business models
  • Testing and validating social impact and cost-effectiveness
  • Making operational refinements
  • Building paths to sustainability and scale

Eligibility Criteria

  • Humanitarian: The aim of the project must be to improve humanitarian practice.
  • Innovation: The aim of the project must be an innovation: creating and implementing a new or improved technology, product or process. The innovation must contribute to improving the relevance, appropriateness, coverage, efficiency or effectiveness of humanitarian aid relative to existing practices.
  • Field Experience: Applications from all sectors are accepted. However, at least one of the partner organisations must be able to demonstrate experience working in humanitarian response. This is to ensure that the innovation is embedded in the humanitarian context and to improve the chances of systemic impact.

How to Apply

Applying for a development grant is a two-stage process:

  • Expressions of Interest (EoI) must be submitted via given website.
  • Successful applications at this phase will then be invited to submit a full proposal.
